Coach Mike Nolan was clearly upset earlier in the season when the 49ers appeared to be the victim of…
49ers replay: Better things coming after bye?
--- RB Frank Gore did not get many touches but still managed to put up some respectable numbers. Gore gained 55 yards on 10 carries, while also catching five passes for 35 yards.
--- WR Bryan Gilmore was used on two reverses. Gilmore gained 22 yards on his first carry, but fumbled at the end of a 9-yard run in the second half against the Chargers.
--- RT Kwame Harris was called for three penalties and also surrendered at least one sack to Chargers LB Shaun Phillips. Coach Mike Nolan said he would not make any decisions on personnel until after he watched the game film. Harris' job might be in jeopardy once the 49ers' injured offensive linemen return, which would free up Adam Snyder to compete with Harris.
--- QB Alex Smith had his second multi-TD game in a row. Smith completed 20 of 31 passes for 214 yards with two TDs and one interception. He was also sacked five times for minus-32 yards.
--- NT Ronald Fields made his first career start and recorded a career-high five tackles. He was also responsible for a safety when Chargers QB Philip Rivers was called for intentional grounding while in Fields' grasp in the end zone.
--- CB Sammy Davis received his first start with the 49ers in place of Walt Harris, who was sidelined with a hamstring strain. Davis was called for a questionable pass-interference penalty, resulting in 41 yards.
--- SS Tony Parrish did not start, as Mark Roman got his first nod of the season. Parrish had previously started all 126 regular-season game of his nine-year career.
